The South Indian film industry just went back a decade or two.
In a time when Bollywood is going all out with glamour and sex comedies like Mastizaade, Kya Kool Hai Hum 3 and whatnot, the South film industry is still scandalised about lip locks. Most of the South Indian films avoid kisses like the plague and it looks like the ones that do, are also faking it.
Here's how the famous kissing scene from Suriya and Kajal Aggarwal's Maatraan was shot and it will really disappoint you. Turns out that the makers of the film used CGI for a simple kiss. A video has surfaced that shows how the entire smooch was shot. It showed KV Anand and his crew shooting Kajal Aggarwal in front of a green screen. The actress was then made to kiss a green cushion.
Similarly, actor Suriya was asked to kiss glass to get the puckered lips right. After this the shot of the two actors kissing their respective props was combined to make it look like a kiss. As ingenious as it all seems, we can't help but feel that the South Indian film industry is still very backward in thinking. Even in the 21st century, the actors are not ready to kiss on screen. But then, it may have also been because Kajal Aggarwal signed a no-kissing clause. She has always maintained that she has never had an onscreen kiss before Do Lafzon Ki Kahani. We didn't believe her before but now we know she wasn't lying!
